Mattress Cleaning Overview
When was the last time you cleaned your mattresses? If you’re noticing gradual spots or odors from your mattresses, it’s probably time for a thorough cleaning. In this article we’ll talk about why it’s important to maintain a clean mattress, whether you should clean it yourself, and the process for hiring a mattress cleaning company should you decide to go that route. So without further delay, let’s jump in!
The issues a dirty mattress can have
Mattress cleaning isn’t exactly something we plan for, and many people put it off as long as they can. But if you want to sleep on a clean mattress that is free of odor and stains, you need to check your mattress and call in a professional to get your mattress back to a clean and healthy condition. After years of cleaning mattress professionally though, we’ve noticed a few issues with prolonging a mattress cleaning:
- Germs and lingering bacteria
Your mattress is full of germs that collect from humans or pets, and nestle their way into the fabric. Even using a bed sheet isn’t enough to keep germs from spreading.
- Human skin
According to an article by ACS, “humans shed their entire outer layer of skin every 2-4 weeks at the rate of 0.001 – 0.003 ounces of skin flakes every hour”. If you spend 30% of your time sleeping in bed, this means 30% of your entire body’s skin collects on your mattress every 2-4 weeks. Yuck!
- Dust mites
Dust mites love gravitating toward human dead cells and dust, and can become a nuisance over time, causing symptoms like coughing, sneezing, congestion and headaches.
- Skin irritation
When your body is exposed to all these things, there’s a chance you will start breaking out, which is not a great experience.
The problems you can run into trying to clean it yourself
Renting an upholstery cleaner from the store can be a good option if you’re trying to save money. But before you decide to clean your mattress on your own, there’s a couple of drawbacks to be prepared for:
- Hassle scheduling the time and renting equipment
A huge factor to cleaning your mattress yourself is the time factor. Drive time alone to and from the store can accumulate into an hour, while the actual cleaning process can take up to half a day depending on how many mattresses you have.
Ultimately you have to determine how much your time is worth. For most people, hiring a professional mattress cleaner saves the most time and hassle.
- Dry time takes longer
Upholstery cleaning rentals have a tendency of releasing larger amounts of spray but not having the strength to extract it out again. This is due to most in-store machines having a lower grade motor that can’t lift moisture out of fabrics and carpet as effectively as an industrial cleaning machine.
Because of this, dry time takes much longer, and you can expect to have your fans running and windows open up until the late evening.
Why using a professional mattress cleaner will help
Before you decide whether you’ll rent a cleaning machine from the store, here’s a few benefits to consider on why hiring a mattress cleaning service could be a better option:
- We save you time and the job is completed quickly
A huge perk is the time you save. Professional mattress cleaning services like Always Green Carpet Cleaning specializes in mattress cleaning and have a proven process to help complete the job quickly without compromising quality.
- We use specialized machinery that cleans and dries better
Our industrial cleaning machines have much stronger power to not only release hot steam that kills germs, but to also extract it from the materials so that your dry time is much quicker.<
- We guarantee our work and are insured
One of the best reasons for hiring a pro is the peace of mind you get knowing that your property is insured, so in the unlikely event that any damage occurs, the company will cover it for you. On the other hand, if you rent a machine from the store and you damage your mattress, you won’t be covered.
